Indian Old-Man Stories




Indian Old-Man Stories collected by Frank Bird Linderman
A perfect deity (Manitou) is always a problem because the world isn't perfect. The Indians solved that problem by attributing the creation of the world and all its creatures to Old-Man. Old-Man (also called Napa) was full of mischief, he told lies, he got into trouble, and finally became such a problem that Manitou built a lodge for him and told him to stay in it. In these stories, War Eagle, the medicine man, tells his grandchildren why things are the way they are as a result of something done by Old-Man. The text for many of these stories is at www.gutenberg.org. Search author Linderman.
A drosh on the story of creation points out that in Genesis the repeated phrase "and God saw that it was good." Means it was a B+. It wasn't excellent.
The text for these stories may be found at www.gutenberg.org
